It will be a four part adaptation of Anthony Boerr's novel

Caring and clever, he’s determined to give his blind daughter as much independence as he can while also protecting her from Nazi occupation.

I wish The Nightingale (that also deals with Occupied France) would have been tuened into a series. These stories deserve epic space. I heard they were looking for an actual blind actress to play Marie-Laure. I find that a bit excesive.

I didn't read All The Light as I read so many mixed reviews on that book, so I'm glad it will be going to film so I don't waste my precious reading time on something I may or may not enjoy. As for Malena's comment on The Nightingale, I haven't heard a single bad thing about that book, so I'm also shocked it hasn't been filmed yet. I have the book lined up in my list to read next. I'll probably start that some time next week now that I'm not falling asleep as soon as my head hits the pillow.

I think that the little actress that they found really is blind. That is the new trend, but I see the wisdom: blind people are not represented, so it is natural that they would at least play blind people on the screens, the same is with gay people and invalids.

DEZMOND said...

I haven't read that one. I started writing reviews for our biggest publisher, so I'm mostly reading domestic writers these days.

Mary Kirkland said...

I love Hugh Laurie so I'll have to check that out.

Malena said...

I agree with you in principle, but I was thinking about the Marlee Matlee’s case. Lovely talented girl, got an Oscar and then has only made guest appearnces in TV shows. There were not enough main roles for a girl who couldn’t speak. I think a blind actor would have a wider range but still…And where would they find an actress to play Helen Keller?

Theresa Mahoney said...

That’s an exciting venture, no? Do you like doing the reviews?

DEZMOND said...

I'm not sure, but I think Marlee currently has a lead role in some US series, either law or crime one, forgot which one. She is still very active although she's gone off my radar as I don't really do US shows. They've put a girl without a leg in La Brea to make it more realistic, but she is an atrocious actress and you can see they gave her the role because she has no leg and they wanted such a character, but her acting totally ruins the show. But the again I remember that guy, I think he was Autistic, that played in LA LAW, he totally enriched the show.

When I'm not working I read a lot as I consider that my job as well, so it is silly not to write something about the books that I read, so I do it mostly to put myself a bit out there, and to give support to writers because I know how unappreciated they feel.It is my way to say thank you to their efforts and sacrifice. Especially as my reviews are some cosy middle - not overly airy and philosophical like with serious critics and not superficial and silly like with bookstagramers. A perfect middle for both readers and writers.

He does seem like your type LOL

Theresa - The Nightingale is by far my favorite book! So good and definitely worth the read. I'm kind of jealous that you haven't read it yet and will get to experience it for the first time.

Jax said...

I read All The Light We Cannot See and really disliked it. I believe I've told you this a few times, so I'll spare you my rant about how it fantasized such a serious topic.

DEZMOND said...

There is something in that script that I don't like either. Reminds me of Salt to the Sea in which the idiotic author tries to depict Germans as not that bad.

Theresa Mahoney said...

I have heard this many times, it being a favorite book to so many. I am excited to tear into the book!
